Life on the Red Planet?

The first photo from Mars has been captured and scientists already have a ton of questions. NASA’s Curiosity Rover has successfully landed on Mars and the beginning of a 2-year exploratory experiment is now underway.

Curiosity Rover is a 6-wheeled, 1 ton robot that cost $2.5 billion to create, and will ultimately give us here on Earth clues to figure out if there was ever a possibility that the red planet could’ve held any form of life.

Later this week, we will witness the very first color photos taken by Curiosity, once it’s camera-tipped mast is raised.

You better believe conspiracy theorists and space nerds are uber-excited.
